What was supposed to be a quick romantic weekend getaway turned out to be a nightmare. I reserved a king room and upon arrival the only room they had for us was a room with double beds. I was still charged the same amount and received no concessions whatsoever for the "bait and switch". The couple checking in just ahead... More

Stephen, The hotel is providing excellent service and rooms that are totally renovated in our second building. As you were in the Main building, these rooms are not totally completed yet. The hotel would have been pleased to put you in another room regardless of the time. I hope to see you and your wife back at the hotel and... More

The stay was fantastic! We had a great view from the room I stayed in, and the beds were comfy! The flooring was very pretty! The bathroom floors can get dirty fast, so I suggest putting towels on the ground or somethin like that! The bay was fun to hang around in too! The house keepers were on time for... More

When we checked in the check in process was good. Courtney at the front desk was very nice and helpful. We were traveling with stand up paddle boards so I was concerned with the size of the room- should we need to bring them in. She assured me our room would be a large room and she was right! Probably... More

This hotel has been going through a renovation. We knew that when we booked our room but the issues we had can not all be contributed to the renovation. To begin with we called this hotel on a Wednesday night to reserve a room for the very next night. When we arrived on Thursday afternoon it took a long time... More

Let me begin by saying that I have stayed in foreign country hostels that were better than this hotel. Yes, garbage is piled extremely high on the side of the hotel blocking the entrance on the side. The room had a sickening odor, and the bed was as hard as a rock. The front desk clerk was rude and seemed... More

remodeling needs to take place. garbage should not be left out by the entrance side door. tub needed to be clean on the outside of tub. doors need to be updated unpleasant older in the hotel and bedrooms. Towels needed to be updated they were very worn, used. the pictures online of the hotel are very deceiving.

Was one of the worst hotel stays ever!!! And I stay in hotels 40 weeks out of a year. First off it id nasty and way to pricey for out of date rooms.. Had major sewage problems. I was afraid to walk on carpet it looked like a mass killing had taken place in the room. It flooded one night... More

I can only apologize for the situation based on the renovations and unexpected terential rain storm the hotel experienced during your stay. As a waterfront property and subject to the prevailing weather, the exorbitant amount of water overloaded the city sewage system much to our dismay. As expressed by the City, "nothing they could do to remedy the overflow". The... More

The Bayside has a pretty nice location, and the rooms are big. It also has a huge 70's vibe - so if you dig large crt tube TVs and pastel corridors, this place is for you. The rooms are a little run down - not a lot, but what you would expect from an older property - and are very... More
